WhaaaAAAT? Keith didn't add to songs? 72-74?

I'm often struck by how prominent he is in the early years -- a leader in jams, high in the mix, tossing out his own ideas that the guys follow -- given how easy it can be to think of him only as he was after his sad, unbelievably sudden decline into near invisibility.

well the way i listen to the dead is by constantly switching who i am hearing. Jerrys rockin, phil tossed in a lick, hey nice sound bobby etc. That being said i think Brent has a lot more of those moments than keith does. But if i had to pick a few years to listen to, They would likely be just Keith years.

And yes i love how nutty we all are. There is a reason for this obsession we have...

For me, Keith Dead was the Dead at the mature height of their powers (but damn how I loved them in their wild and carefree youth) and thereafter they were in their complacent middle age marked by the Mydland era and the decline into dotage illuminated by the second childhood flash of the all too brief Hornsby adventure.
